Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Sequoia Humane Society and helping us help the animals. We know that your life is very busy and we appreciate that you would like to share some of your time with us.
The Sequoia Humane Society provides a number of opportunities to assist in the daily activities of our shelter. Activities may include such things as: organizing supplies, folding laundry, socializing and grooming the dogs and cats, walking dogs, office assistance, helping out at our thrift shop, and working on special events. Due to safety concerns, youth volunteers (under 18) must assist a parent or guardian when handling animals and stay with them at all times.
Volunteer orientations are held the first Sunday of the month at 2PM (unless otherwise noted) at our Pet Adoption Center. New volunteers will be paired with a staff member during their first volunteer visit so that they receive training in safe animal handling procedures. We ask all volunteers make a minimum of a 6 month commitment when they sign up to be a volunteer.
Catnip Pillow Project -- Don't have the time to volunteer, but still want to help the animals? Here is a great project you can do at home: Catnip Pillows Project
Catnip pillows are small fabric pillows stuffed with a decent amount of Catnip and some filler fluff (used in pillows). Cats and kittens enjoy playing with them and lying on them. The pillows are sold for $1.00 donation with the proceeds going to the Sequoia Humane Society.
You can help the animals by making these pillows in your home and donating them to us. You can make Catnip Pillows to fulfill community service requirements, as a youth group project, or as a personal project!
